All irregularities will be handled by the forces controlling each dimension. Transuranic, heavy elements may not be used where there is life. Medium atomic weights are available: Gold, Lead, Copper, Jet, Diamond, Radium, Sapphire, Silver and Steel. Sapphire and Steel have been assigned. Christmas Eve. The Present. The Capital Palace, once a popular theatre, now stands next to a long-abandoned graveyard.

Plans to celebrate the work of a dead playwright in the theatre draw Sapphire and Steel into a deadly maze from which there is no hope of escape.

In a house where all the clocks stopped at midnight, Sapphire is at the mercy of an old woman with a familiar dace. And Steel is reunited with an old ally… but for how long?

Susannah Harker (Sapphire), David Warner (Steel), Lisa Bowerman (Ruby), Nicholas Briggs (Arthur), Lucy Gaskell (The Girl), Suzanne Procter (Dolly)
